  Schizophrenia: Voices Of An Illness
RAListen to a selection from the program

The Peabody Award-winning "Schizophrenia: Voices of an Illness," is the first major radio documentary to feature people with the thought disorder telling their own stories in their own words. Eleven people, many of whom have recovered--including a doctor, a writer and a teacher--provide intimate, first-person accounts of the onset, living with, and recovering from this most misunderstood illness. Jason Robards narrates this second program in the "Voices of An Illness" series which has aired on over 260 National Public Radio stations across the country and has been honored with ten major media and mental health awards.

Jason Robards This landmark one-hour program also presents leading clinicians, medical researchers and mental health advocates, including those from the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, explaining this disease that affects one in 100 people and how a growing number of people are able to significantly improve thanks to new, so-called "second generation" medications.
